As Seen - x3

I have had a very pleasant afternoon, I went for a walk through Seven Fields with a friend, we chatted and laughed and I took photos, unfortunately Lisa can't see them because she is blind but she doesn't mind me stopping every now and then to capture what I see.
I was a little early for our meeting so had time to take some photos before and I couldn't resist this one being my picture for the day.

I called out to them "what a super bike" and the elder child very seriously said "The extra bit you have to fix on it isn't part of the bike".

The conkers are ripening and ready to fall

As we came out of the wooded part into a clearing we had an unexpected find an Orchard with a wrought Iron gate so I just have to have another As seen for today

I was determined to get a photo of the pair of us and finding a convenient raised man hole cover (I think it is part of the sewerage system by the smell) I propped my camera, set it on timer and here we are

We were out for about an hour and a half, I thought we had got lost at one stage but have come to the conclusion that it just isn't possible to get lost in Swindon because there is always a road that will eventually lead to somewhere I recognise, and of course I did find ASDA and a Starbuck was the perfect ending.

My third As Seen? Well I had forgotten post yesterday's one so here it is, a close up of a variegated leaf covered in hairs growing rampant in my garden

I do have a page to share taking up on a tutorial from Glitter Girl Shimelle to use a border paper in a different way. This paper I've had for a long while it originally had a red edge to it and in my opinion just didn't look right so I cut that off then cut the whole now shaped paper into 4 section and inverted them ie border in the centre, though I've only use two part in the end.

Whiskers aquiver

I haven't done my Learn something new yet may have to catch up with that tomorrow

Today I am grateful for a friend who will phone me to go for a walk
for sunshine and chatter and a surprise find.

I love the whiskers layout.

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
